As WWE's Raw reunion show creeps closer, the list of returning Superstars keeps getting longer and longer, sitting at almost 40 confirmed names.
We've already reported that it appears Sasha Banks being advertised for this Monday's Raw has changed, but that doesn't mean there won't be plenty of appearances by other popular current and former wrestlers to take her place. Labeled a Raw Reunion, the list of current stars confirmed to appear include Braun Strowman, Natalya, Samoa Joe, Ricochet, Rey Mysterio, Bobby Lashley, The Miz, Alexa Bliss, The Usos, The Viking Raiders, Cesaro, Titus O'Neil, WWE 24/7 Champion R-Truth, and RAW Tag Team Champions The Revival.
Also set for the show is Brock Lesnar and two matches: Seth Rollins and RAW Women's Champion Becky Lynch vs. Lacey Evans and Baron Corbin and Roman Reigns vs. Shane McMahon, which is billed as a Special Attraction Match.
But, if we're being honest, these matches and the current stars are probably not why fans will tune in this coming Monday. It is the returning stars that have most of the WWE Universe intrigued. Will they be worked into current storylines or simply making cameos?
And, does the list of names coming back lend to any hints that others who are not advertised might not be far behind?
Below is the updated listing of WWE Hall of Famers, Legends and former Superstars for next Monday's big RAW: Alundra Blayze, Booker T, Christian, D-Von Dudley, DX (Triple H, Shawn Michaels, Sean "X-Pac" Waltman, "Road Dogg" BG James), Eric Bischoff, Gerald Brisco, Hulk Hogan, Hurricane Helms, Jerry Lawler, Jimmy Hart, Kelly Kelly, Kevin Nash, Kurt Angle, Lilian Garcia, Mark Henry, Melina, Mick Foley, Pat Patterson, Ric Flair, Rikishi, Ron Simmons, Santino Marella, Scott Hall, Sgt. Slaughter, Shawn Michaels, Sid Vicious, Steve Austin, Ted DiBiase Sr., The Boogeyman, The Godfather.
What This Means
Looking at the list, there are a few names worth noting. Melina is now confirmed which begs the question, will Johnny Impact make an appearance? He's now done with IMPACT Wrestling. D-Von Dudley is advertised but Bubba Ray is not. Might that change? There's no Sting on the card but rumors of a Sting versus Undertaker match don't seem to go away.
This Monday will be an interesting show to watch and for a variety of reasons.
